Default Re: Full recovery disk

When you install programs, is the directory set to D: as default? If you don't know, try to install something and see what it's doing. Your recovery should be nearly full by default. Your C: isn't too empty either. You have about 50GB of stuff in there.

This seems to be a very common problem with HP factory setup laptops. I don't know much about it since I don't ever use a recovery partition myself.

When you're installing a file, and you want it to go to C: all you have to do is change the install destination. They should show you the default path and allow you to change it at some point during the setup wizard.
